Now that summer is officially over and all that white denim is being put away, we’re ready to kickstart our 6th–yes, it really has been six years–season of the Agitprop Reading Series this coming Saturday, September 7th with two exciting readers: Louise Mathias & Brett Zehner.
Louise Mathias was born in Bedford, England and grew up in England and Los Angeles. She is the author of The Traps, just released from Four Way Books, and Lark Apprentice, chosen by Brenda Hillman for the New Issues Poetry Prize and published by New Issues Press in 2004. Her poems have recently appeared
in TriQuarterly, Octopus, The Offending Adam, Massachusetts Review, and many other journals. She lives in Joshua Tree, California.
Brett Zehner studied geography at Ohio State University where he was a researcher on public housing issues. He later turned down a job at the CIA to pursue work in anarcho poetics at UCSD. Among other things, he is a percussionist who has recorded and toured with bands ranging in style from garage punk to noise and found sound. Currently, he is collaborating on an eco-documentary project concerned with abusive land use patterns in the Dakotas. His work has appeared in Dusie and Jupiter 88.
As always, there is no cover charge for reading, but libations and donations for the readers are always welcome. We hope to see you there and for festivities before and after.
